I say we go back to the "From many, one" version, myself.
The first motto on U.S. currency was on the Continental Dollar. "Mind your business" was coined (no pun intended) by Benjamin Franklin.

It would make an excellent motto for today as well.

Oh the irony. The time we're most often reminded of the almighty creator is when we're buying something. Americans don't really trust in God, but money.

What does being conservative or liberal have to do with any reference to a god?

In God We Trust wasn't even put on money until 1957. It doesn't mean anything unless you want it to.

To be more correct, it wasn't put on bills till 1957, it's been on coins for far longer (late 1800's).

The conservatives like to pretend its a real thing, and they can call him up and order him to do their bidding any time they want to. The Liberals, for the most part, have moved past believing in fairy tales.

If a god is mentioned on the money, the one who accumulates the most money is the one favored by the god, and wins the trophy for Most Devout.

I consider myself more conservative than liberal (except on social issues), so I object and take umbrage against the hoards of those that anally call themselves conservative, when really they are just a bunch of inbred or inbred wannabes, bigoted, fundie low lifes.

They and the current GOP forgot all about balancing budgets and deficits, and think that their hooting and bellowing about controversial social issues somehow makes them true conservatives. They probably think the term neoliberal is a put down.
